Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookies-these taste just like the glazed oatmeal cookies you buy in the store, only better!
We (my youngest and I) have been baking cookies every week for her to sell to raise money for her Washington DC Trip.
School started back last week, so I’m doing the baking while she’s at school. We usually bake a standby, we know it’s awesome, and her customers love it, cookie.
The ladies at the bank have become my personal taste testers. If a cookie makes it past them, I know it’s good. And because they know they’re taste testers, they give me honest opinions. I love these ladies.
I decided since I had the kitchen to myself, I’d just make 2 new cookie recipes. Big mistake. I’ll claim user error, possibly, on one, but the other one was just terrible.
I was so frustrated. It’s not like I could just say never mind. These ladies expect cookies. I did have a 3rd recipe I wanted to try out so I took a deep breath, pulled up my big girl panties and made them.
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I went ahead with the 3rd recipe! Not only did everyone in my house love them, my oldest daughter begged me not to sell them!
They were loved by the bank ladies. I found the recipe over at Shugary Sweets. I pinned it way back when she first posted it. Just another reason I love Pinterest. I can go find recipes I know I want to make when I’m finally ready to make them.
I knew these cookies would be good. Aimee of Shugary Sweets makes things like Peanut Butter Fudge, Chocolate Mocha Cookies, Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosted Cupcakes and even a Chocolate Cake Shake! All of these are on my baking bucket list! I only adjusted the glaze from the original recipe.

- 1 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 cups quick cooking oats
- 2 cups all purpose flour
for the glaze
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon maple extract
- In a food processor or a chopper, give your oats a light chop. Just enough to make the pieces smaller but not too fine. Set aside.
- In your mixing bowl, combine sugars then mix in melted butter. Add eggs, one at a time, make sure to scrape down sides of bowl. Add in flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix till well combined.
- Drop by spoonfuls (I use a medium cookie scoop) onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 13-15 minutes. My cookies were done at 14 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before removing to racks to cool completely.
- Combine powdered sugar, cream and maple extract to make a glaze. Brush or drizzle over cookies. Let glaze dry at room temperature before storing. It took my glaze about 6 hours to completely set so I could stack my cookies.
